Gov't Mule are readying their new album Shout! for a September 24th release, and they've brought along quite a few friends. The Southern rockers laid down 11 new tracks for their first studio album in four years, and they also brought in the likes of My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Grace Potter, Dave Matthews, and Toots Hibbert of Toots and the Maytals for a special second disc featuring those artists' interpretations of the new Gov't Mule tracks. Gov't Mule still leads the way on disc two, but they let their friends take the vocal reigns for entirely different looks at their brand new jams.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
